Major PV materials firm, Heraeus Photovoltaics is establishing fully-equipped ‘Innovation Centers’ in Shanghai and Singapore for new product development and customer specific modifications for monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar cells.
Leading up to the PV ModuleTech 2017 conference, less than 3 months away (Kuala Lumpur, 7-8 November 2017), this blog series explains why this dedicated two-day industry event has the potential to provide some key answers for EPCs, developers and asset owners, in terms of understanding the key metrics that underpin solar modules going forward, ultimately mitigating risks during site design and build-out, while optimizing overall return-on-investment for more than 20 years in the field.

Talesun has launched a new double glass photovoltaic panel with aluminum frame that has achieved TÜV certification. The ‘TWINKLE’ (TD660P) 60-cell multicrystalline panel uses the aluminum frame as the sealing point for the panel’s edges, the double glass modules are therefore weather-resistant and easier to install and transport.
Integrated PV module manufacturer REC Group has claimed that a pre-production batch of multicrystalline solar cells at its manufacturing plant in Singapore achieved a best conversion efficiency of 20.47% measured by an in-house tester with an external calibration cell.
Solar module manufacturer Hanwha Q CELLS has officially set a new world record in multicrystalline PV module efficiency, as the independent Fraunhofer ISE CalLab confirmed an efficiency rating of 19.5% in relation to the aperture area and a power output of 301 watts.
